Neowin: Italy imposes €1m fine on Facebook over Cambridge Analytica scandal. “Garante Privacy, the official data protection authority in Italy, has found Facebook guilty of crimes committed under the Cambridge Analytica case for which it has issued a penalty of €1m to the social-media behemoth. The protective authority imposes blame on the company for breaching Italian privacy laws pertaining to user data. The fine in question has been charged based on the previous legislation, as the relevant privacy laws were updated in January earlier this year.” €1 million euros is a bit over $1.3 million USD.
